Gamestop offered me $165 of store credit for the XBox and Kinect. I ended up selling it online for $200. I still have Rockband 2 plus all of the instruments that I need to unload, but considering a 360 Kinect bundle goes for $250 new, I think I did alright...

All in all, I'm pretty happy with the PS3. I got a 160GB with a 2nd controller. I decided to get a PS3 exclusive game since I obviously had never played any of them. I only got the God of War Saga (1, 2, 3, plus 2 PSP titles) for now since it will probably keep me busy for a while.

I don't have a ton of BluRay discs but the DVD upscaler is nice - my 8 year old daughter saw a difference immediately. Also, it's hooked up identically to the way my XBox was and my older daughter and I noticed an immediate different in sound quality when playing Sacred 2. On the XBox, we had to tweak bass settings on the sound bar to avoid clipping and rattle. It just plain sounded like shit. On the PS3, using exactly the same setup and cables, it sounds crisp and clean with no clipping.

The only real beef I have is with the controllers. It's great that they are rechargeable but having to plug them into the console via USB is a pain. My couch is about 16 feet from the TV and I'm used to just grabbing a controller off the coffee table and gaming. Plus, if you want to charge the controllers, you have to leave the unit ON 24x7. WTF?

Fortunately, I was able to get a charging station just like my old Nikko on Amazon.
Hmmmmm....the moral of this story I got from this is that I need to wait till I get married and have kids before I trade in my 360. Sound about right?
